Book Description

1 Mar 2009 0077121880 978-0077121884 4
Foundations of Economics, fourth edition is ideal for students taking introductory economics modules as part of an interdisciplinary course. Building on the success of the second edition, the book provides accessible overviews of key economic topics, interweaving these with real-world examples and practical activities to equip students to think for themselves.

Features of this edition include:

Topical and up-to-date material, presented alongside real-world examples and policy problems Mini case studies taken from disciplines such as construction, sport and computing, to demonstrate the practical application of economics Increased microeconomic coverage; including separate chapters on supply, demand and markets, to provide students with a thorough grounding in these fundamental areas

A revised structure to the macroeconomics section, beginning with growth, cycles, and issues, before introducing analysis and explanations Learning outcomes and recaps in each chapter, allowing students to track their progress and understanding through the text

Key terms, clearly defined throughout each chapter Review questions and answers in each chapter, to test understanding and application of the topics covered An easy-to-navigate layout and design, with clearly signposted features and photos and figures to illustrate important concepts

Succinctly offering the proven quality, consistency and clarity of the parent text Economics (‘The Student Bible’ BBC Radio 4), Foundations of Economics, forth edition is the essential text for today’s non-specialist economics student.

I bought this book as my daughter was doing an introduction to economics on her degree course. She found the book very relevant to what she was doing and helpful when answering questions about the subject.
The book has plenty of examples and is well laid out for study.

Essential for anybody studying economics without any background knowledge.
It explains both Micro and Macro, is easy to read and is laid out nicely - NOT boring like most textbooks.
Would recommend it for anybody interested in or learning economics.
